Sharsheret - Cancer Support


Have you or a loved one been impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis?

Sharsheret Supports Milwaukee, a partnership between Jewish Family Services and the Harry and Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center and Sharsheret, is your Jewish connection to breast cancer resources in the Milwaukee community and nationwide. On a local and national level, Sharsheret Supports Milwaukee connects you to the programs that offer information, guidance, education, and family and individual support at every stage of the journey-- before, during or after diagnosis.

Sharsheret, Hebrew for “chain”, is a national not-for-profit organization supporting women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer. Their mission is to offer a community of support to women diagnosed with breast cancer or at increased genetic risk, by fostering culturally-relevant individualized connections with networks of peers, health professionals, and related resources. Sharsheret offers a continuum of care for the Jewish community – addressing the needs of those who are concerned about the risk of breast cancer in their family, those who have been diagnosed with the disease and are undergoing treatment, and those who face issues of survivorship or recurrence.
